Stina Lykke Petersen (born 9 February 1986) is a Danish football goalkeeper who plays for German Bundesliga club MSV Duisburg and the Denmark women's national football team.

Lykke Petersen began playing football aged five in her hometown Højby.[1] In 2007 she attended Rollins College in Florida and played NCAA varsity soccer.[2]

She was called into the Denmark squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2005 as an uncapped player.[3]

After a knee injury to regular goalkeeper Heidi Johansen, Lykke Petersen was elevated to first choice for UEFA Women's Euro 2013.[4] In Denmark's opening group match against hosts Sweden she saved two second half penalty kicks from Lotta Schelin and Kosovare Asllani, respectively, to secure a 1–1 draw.[5]

Denmark progressed to the quarter-finals on the drawing of lots, where they shocked France in a penalty shoot-out after a 1–1 draw. Lykke Petersen stopped Louisa Nécib's kick in the shoot-out, after narrowly failing to keep out the same player's penalty goal during the match.[6] Denmark's run came to an end in the semi-final when they lost another penalty shoot-out to Norway.

Following the tournament Lykke Petersen secured a transfer from Brøndby to FCR 2001 Duisburg. She had compiled three Elitedivisionen titles and four Danish Women's Cups in her time with Brøndby.[7]
